Gender- und Diversity-Tag 2021: Wie unbewusste Verhaltensmuster die Karriere beeinflussen

Gender and Diversity Day 2021: How unconscious habits influence careers

This year's Gender and Diversity Day will take place on 19.05.2021, 09:00 a.m. - 01:00 p.m., and is designed as a dialogue and exchange forum for Master's students, PhD students and postdocs from all disciplines at the Faculty of Natural Sciences.

Ass. Prof. PhD Devasmita Chakraverty (IIMA, India) and Prof. Dr. Marc Lerchenmüller (University of Mannheim) will give keynote speeches on the "Impostor Syndrome" and the "Gender Citation Gap" to show how much unconscious behaviour can influence careers. Other contributors are Sabine Jürgens-Krenzin (moderator), the team of the Equal Opportunities Officer of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Prof. Dr. Kremer (Institute for Didactics in the Natural Sciences).

The Gender and Diversity Day is intended to promote a change of culture within the Faculty of Natural Sciences in order to initiate and sensitise change processes wherever necessary so that gender equality and cultural diversity are convincingly implemented and lived at the Faculty.

Keynote talks:

  • Ass. Prof. PhD Devasmita Chakraverty (IIMA, India):
    "Impostor syndrome among students in science" – talk in English with discussion
  • Prof. Dr. Marc Lerchenmüller (University of Mannheim):
    "The Gender Gap is Reinforced by Language Use - Natural language processing on six million science texts" – talk in German with discussion

In addition, interactive reflection rounds and short workshops will offer participants of the Gender and Diversity Day the opportunity to examine and discuss the exciting study results from different perspectives.
